We are pleased to announce the 1st Seminar Series on Governance, Institutions, and Sustainability” jointly hosted by the Centre for Political Economy and Institutional Studies and by the Birkbeck Responsible Business Centre, within the Birkbeck Business School.    

In our rapidly evolving world, the intricate web connecting governance, institutions, and sustainability has become increasingly prominent. We invite scholars, researchers, and practitioners to enhance this very important debate and to join us in exploring the profound intertwining of these critical elements at our upcoming seminar series. 



Although diversity in companies is a topic of great interest, significant aspects of the issue are often missing from the debate. The Corporate Diversity Jigsaw connects all the dots so that steps taken to address issues of diversity in business organisations can be more effective. It offers a nuanced analysis of the types of diversity that are most useful for corporations, and recent social movements such as #MeToo and BLM. After a critical assessment of regulations across jurisdictions, the book provides a different way to solve the problem, by encouraging companies to make improvements to their culture and internal processes.
